Mulch price-What would you charge?

I'm having a hard time pricing mulch. What do you charge per yrd to put down mulch? Let's assume mulch is about $30/c yd and you have to haul the mulch less than 5miles. I usually charge about $15/yd to lay it down...so about $44/yrd. I think I'm priced a little too low. Thoughts?

Triple the cost of the mulch. No less than double the cost if you wanna make a little money.

$44/yard is way to cheap even if you were hauling it 1 mile. You pay $30 a yard and double the price so then your fuel, delivery and helpers pay come out of the next $30 and you make hardly nothing so always look into triple the price.

We normally get 65-75 oer yard installed. This is the going rate around here in northern va and we make a decent profit at that price
